My "Verse"

Last week at dVerse Poets, Brian Miller had us pondering our "Verse," (as in the commercial for the new IPad Air, with Robin Williams voice over excerpt from the Dead Poets Society. "“We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering — these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love — these are what we stay alive for."  
"What will your verse be?"
 I hope that my legacy will be one of kindness and generosity, love and friendship, and that I will be remembered as a person of depth and sincerity. For now, here is "my verse" from the lessons that I've learned over time:
